Manihi Atoll
We have had a great few days here in the lagoon of Manihi.  From postcard perfect days with perfect snorkeling, to a 2 day rain and wind storm!  Our fresh water tanks are filled to the brim with rainwater (the best!), we have fresh baguettes from the boulangerie  and its time to move on. This afternoon we will leave for Rangiroa (about 100nm SW), taking  the trip overnight, so we can enter that cut in daylight.  Now lets hope our anchor is not jammed in the coral!
Here are some pics from Mahini:
This hotel is sadly closed                                                                    Our dinghy seems to float above the clear water
Even the police drive tri-cycles                                        Thursday is supply-ship day
